Numerals in webcomics

Over the past few years, I have been informally collecting and curating a set of comics (mostly online webcomics) relating to my main research interest in numerals, number systems, and numeracy.     While I am led to understand that not everyone in the world appreciates my particularly nerdesque sense of humour, it seems reasonable to suppose that if you’re reading this blog, then you might be like me and find these to be hilarious and/or thought-provoking.    Here are some of my favourites; reader contributions are very welcome (along with suggestions of other comics where I might find good material in the future).
